To A Friend - Poem by Anushree Das

I say I don't trust myself,
Just to hear you say you do.
Looking back at the hell
We've put each other through,
At all the fights,
Old and new,
And the friends that have left
After just a few,
Just believe me now
(As you always do)
When I say this-
No friendship can ever be true
If not the one
Shared by me and you.

    Awesome. There is an honest confession of the poet-speaker about her inability to trust herself. But then she wants the other person to be trustworthy because she values her friendship with him, even in retrospect. She probably does not want to lose him even though he does not apparently fulfil all her desires. The artist has a smooth command over language and rhythm. Hoping to read more poems from you. Best wishes. (Report) Reply
